The Hajj, one of the most significant religious events in the Islamic calendar, beckons Muslims from around the world to journey to Makkah each year. For the residents of Qatar, the opportunity to participate in this sacred pilgrimage is facilitated through a well-organized registration process.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll take you through the essential steps and requirements on how to register for Hajj from Qatar.

Hajj 2024 Registration From Qatar

Every year, Qatar’s Ministry of Endowment and Islamic affairs (Awqaf) forms the Qatari Hajj Mission which selects the eligible candidates for the Hajj seats. The online registration for aspiring pilgrims is done through the Hajj Mission website of the Ministry of Endowment and Islamic Affairs.

Qatari citizens, GCC citizens and expatriate residents who plan to go to Hajj from Qatar are required to apply online through the official website.

Starting and Closing Dates

Registration for the upcoming Hajj Season in 2024 started on September 20, 2023, and will continue until October 26, 2023 at 1 pm. This period provides ample time for both citizens and expatriates to complete their registration process.

The Hajj Department decided to open the registration earlier this year to give enough time to Hajj tour operators to make contracts with Saudi companies and other necessary arrangements to serve pilgrims in a better way.

Allotment for Qatar

Saudi authorities have allocated a quota of 4,400 pilgrim spots for Qatar for the 2024 Hajj Season. This announcement was made by the Department of Haj and Umrah during a press conference held at the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs.
